I have actually made these many times. It is so easy, and delicious, no one suspects that it starts with a cake mix!! We love dark chocolate here, so I always add 1 or 2 oz of melted baking chocolate to the cookie mixture. Enjoy!! VFE

I love this recipe. I use some to make homemade ice cream sandwiches. The rest I frost. I'm making them again today!

Made these today and they were a huge hit! I just used premade frosting for the filling because I don't like cream cheese filling. So easy to make and everybody loved them!

I split the recipe down the middle, making half with a strawberry cake mix and half with a Devil's Food Cake mix. I halved the filling recipe also, filling half with that and half with some canned chocolate frosting. Fast and fun!

These are very easy to make and better than oreos. Only change I made was used the marshmellow creame filling found on here for the oatmeal sanwich cookies bc I dont like creame cheese.

This may have been a bad recipe for me to learn because I have made these cookies three times in a little more than a week! I made them for a party and they were the first dessert to go! I've received nothing but compliments, they are crazy delicious!!

My daughters favorite cookie to make, its quick and easy and delicious. They keep well in the fridge and are a great treat straight from the freezer on a hot day.

My teenage daughter loves making these cookies and they don't last long around here. She has to hide them if we're expecting visitors. Only question I would have is about the yield. I have never actually got 6 dozen and I didn't think my cookies were overly huge. Is it 6 dozen sandwiches or 6 dozen cookies that yield 3 dozen sandwiches. Another note is that there is usually filling left over (that's easy to use!)
